Nice.
 
2014-03-28 02:40:47 PM  
This is hilarious.  Something about this whole thing just amuses me to no end.  Some folks, like Brigitte Prat, have no sense of humor.  Jeez, I guess she might be in for a prat-fall.  Anyway, she is luck they don't call their network Lulu's Store Front for Human Trafficking.  This is almost as amusing as that New York lady that sued to find out who called her a skank.

I read an article a few years ago about a sociologist who went around cataloging wireless network names and drawing conclusions about people because of them.  I'm pretty sure this is exactly what that guy was getting at.

That's fantastic.  And the great thing about that is the router doesn't even need to be connnected to anything.   It's just there, broadcasting whatever message you would like via SSID.

I think I might have a couple of old routers that I can use to my amusement.

I moved into a new complex awhile back and as I set up my wireless it came back with the following:

Stevespeesonalserver-screw off

Well I guess some residents thought that was just rude so everyone had to change theirs. There was stevesshemaleserver, stevesincestpornserver, Etc etc etc

/either that or Steve is one kinky dude

The router doesn't even need to be plugged into anything else.
 
2014-03-28 03:46:01 PM  
So she went to the ISP and the cops thinking they would or could do anything about what someone named their router?
It would be scary of they actually did do something though.

Mine says "NSA CIA Local..."

I've had Verizon and Comcast techs on the phone a few times to do resets and such when I can't quite get it and they just roll with it.

Am I the only one around here who DOESN'T bleach his poo-hole?
 
2014-03-28 03:47:00 PM  
That's just silly.  I haven't seen any kids that have crapped enough in their lives to require anal bleaching.
 
2014-03-28 03:47:42 PM  
Be glad it's "bleaching" and not "gaping"

I have mine up and not connected to anything and occasionally I'll screw with people using the SSID.

Named it "No Internet Access" with no encryption and logged 100 connections in just over a week.

Seriously people will click on anything.

That is freaking hilarious. I love creative network names. Ours at home was something pretty dirty but I changed it last time the parents came to visit... I really didn't want to explain it to a 67 year old woman who just wanted to use her iPad.

Dig the techno-douche in the 5th comment in TFA.

but for an appropriate fee ($500/hr base 3 hours minimum plus travel and per diem) I could locate the offender to within about 3 feet

...Get over yourself, dude.

I could block connections to it by the radio's MAC address and shut down connections to it that way as well

Uh, not legally.

Mine is 'It burns when IP'
 
2014-03-28 03:56:07 PM  
At first, I was like, "No way can an SSID be that long." But I'll be damned, it's up to 32 characters. Wow.
 
2014-03-28 03:56:21 PM  
Pretty funny.

Provided someone is actually using it there are ways to make them miserable until they stop but if it's just a router plugged in for the sole use of broadcasting the SSID then you're out of luck.

Figured it would be some stuck up stroller-mafia place like Park Slope.


It is a name that threatens to sully the posh and sophisticated reputation of a shop that  to give your child a new lease on life via his or her tresses ($10 for just a bangs job).

$10 for a kids bang job? Thats a great deal! You can usually only get those prices in Thailand.

I started doing it about a month ago. I change it about once a week. So far, I've had

I have an app on my phone that's pretty good at measuring WiFi signal strength, I bet I could use it to wander around for half an hour and nail it down pretty close. I've used it to measure signal strength when we were hooking up WiFi at my last job, figuring where on the warehouse floor one access point was overtaken by the second one.

I'm pretty sure basic trademark infringement rules apply here. Unfortunately it may be hard to find out who is running it though.

So could anyone with a copy of Netstumbler or inSSIDer.   Just requires walking around and measuring signal strength.   If it's an apartment building 3 feet is a bit unrealistic without access to the apartments.   Depending on the location in the apartment and how the antennas are positioned I'd say you could realistically knock it down to 2, maybe 4 if it's not at table height.
